Post #8 and on: Does the evidence from the synoptic Gospels for the premise that “Jesus claimed to be God” hold up under closer examination?

Posts #4 – #7: Most leading Jesus scholars reject the assumption that the Gospel of John is a reliable source of the words and teachings of Jesus, so we can safely ignore about 90% of the evidence that McDowell gives in support of the premise “Jesus claimed to be God”.

Post #3: A number of the passages McDowell cites from the Gospel of John are either unclear or irrelevant in relation to the premise that “Jesus claimed to be God”.

Posts #1 and #2: Introduction to, and analysis of McDowell’s Trilemma argument.
